Abstract

On 26 March 2010, a sudden explosion rocked the South Korean warship Cheonan, breaking the vessel in two and causing the death of 46 sailors. Analysis by an international team of experts concluded the disaster resulted from an external underwater explosion generated by a torpedo manufactured in North Korea.1 Although the North Korean government denied involvement, many experts in undersea warfare believe a North Korean midget submarine likely launched the fatal blow that sent Cheonan to the bottom of the Yellow Sea.
